If you are age 50 or over on January 1, 2020, or will be turning age 50 in 2020, you’re eligible to make additional pre-tax and/or Roth contributions (unmatched) into your 401(k) up to a maximum of $6,500 in 2020.

Vesting refers to the portion of your account that you "own." See page 2 of the Participant Guide found when you log into NetBenefits.com.
As an eligible associate, you’re automatically enrolled in the 401(k) on the first of the month coincident with or following 60 days of employment at a contribution rate of 3% of eligible pay. As part of automatic enrollment, you’re also enrolled in the automatic annual increase program (AIP), which increases your contribution by 1% each year until you reach 6%.
If you wish to contribute to the Plan before you are automatically enrolled or to opt out of automatic enrollment, log in to NetBenefits.com or call Fidelity at 1-800-635-4015. Note that you’ll need to sign up for AIP if you choose to actively enroll. To do so, log in to NetBenefits.com and click Contribution Amount.
